New Tile Roof on a La Cañada Flintridge Home

New Tile Roof on a La Cañada Flintridge Home

 

This La Cañada Flintridge home had solar installed in the recent past and experienced a new leak near the panel locations. The felt underlayment was already towards the end of its life. The entire roof paper was brittle and more leaks would be coming soon. Level 1 Roofing and the owners of the house decided it was best to replace the waterproofing underlayment on the entire house. The Homeowners decided on switching from the old red tiles to get a more sophisticated color and style on the home for decades to come. As well as upgrading from the previously installed asphaltic felt to a newer synthetic underlayment.

Level 1 Roofing put a brand new roof system in place to give the home an updated look and allow the solar to have a firm leak-free foundation to provide energy.

Roof Replacement on a South Los Angeles home remodel with GAF Charcoal Grand Sequoia

Roof Replacement on a south Los Angeles home remodel with GAF Charcoal Grand Sequoia

 

The owners of this home in south Los Angeles decided to remodel much of the interior and exterior of their home. After considering the age of the previous roof and the issues it had a roof replacement was the obvious move. A premium Grand Sequoia GAF shingle was chosen. The charcoal color offered by GAF is one of the only “dark” colors that are available in much of California due to Title 24 regulations.

A full GAF system was installed as the roof replacement on this home. The Grand Sequoia shingles, the Ridglass along the ridges, Prostart starter strip and premium synthetic GAF tiger paw underlayment to round it off. Also installed were a series of low profile vents from O’Hagin and valley metal to ensure the protection over the most vulnerable areas, the valleys.

Whether you have a small repair, large home roof replacement, or something in between, the team Level 1 Roofing Inc strives to bring you the only best in roofing.

Tile Roof Repair with Synthetic Underlayment in Lake Elsinore CA

Tile Roof Repair with Synthetic Underlayment in Lake Elsinore CA

 

As a tile roof ages, the concrete or clay tiles will hold up quite well to nature and the sun. Often lasting several decades. Where a tile roof will begin to fail is the felt underlayment. In as little as 10 to 15 years the underlayment can lose much of its flexibility and asphalt emulsion. This means any shift in pressure or heavy rains can cause tears in your waterproofing layer. When Level 1 Roofing Inc prepares an estimate we highly recommend going with the newer and proven synthetic underlayment instead of an asphalt felt. The heat doesn’t deteriorate the synthetic product anywhere near the amount felt does.

This Lake Elsinore homeowner decided to go ahead and do the partial lift and relay repairs with a UDL 50 synthetic waterproofing underlayment. In these types of repairs, we reuse the existing tile where possible and use new or reclaimed tile where needed. The new or reclaimed tiles will not be a perfect match as every tile roof has a different color due to age, sun exposure, moisture, and dust.

Shingle Re-Roof on a North Los Angeles 2 Story Home

Shingle Re-Roof on a North Los Angeles 2 Story Home

 

This Los Angeles home located in North Hills posed some unique challenges during the re-roof process. For all major projects, Level 1 Roofing will file and make payment for any necessary city or county building permits involving roofing. Many cities and counties have varying unique or different requirements for the permit process. In the case of roof replacement in the city of Los Angeles, a city-approved and permitted waste hauler must remove waste from the job site. The community HOA also has stringent rules on when and where and how long vehicles, or in this case, a waste bin can be parked. This took many calls and emails between us and both the city and the HOA but we were able to get the schedule lined up for everyone to be happy without undue stress upon the homeowner.

The roof itself was simple, we agreed on installing GAF Timberline HD Reflector Series in the Birchwood color with matching Ridglass on the ridges and hips. Tiger Paw synthetic underlayment and pro start starter stripes on the eaves from GAF allowed us to provide an unparalleled lifetime limited warranty from the number one roofing manufacturer in North America. We tore off the old worn out shingle roof system previously installed down to the bare plywood sheathing and put down a quality comp shingle roofing system.

Now the roof is ready for many years of weather stopping service and future solar installation that is planned in the coming weeks.

Commercial Roofing Restoration in Temecula, CA – Silicone Coating on Warehouse

Commercial Roofing Restoration in Temecula, CA – Silicone Coating on Warehouse

 

On this particular commercial roofing Temecula, CA warehouse project, Level 1 Roofing proposed two different bids for the building owners. The building size, shape, layout, and condition of the previous roof made this an excellent candidate for restoration with GE Enduris silicone coating. The other option proposed was a single-ply TPO roof. TPO is also a great option and pretty much the standard for new construction projects but also has a little bit higher price tag when compared to using a high-quality silicone coating. Many of the skylights in place on the building were in bad condition and contributed to the problems with the leaks. We included removing and installing new skylights in our agreement.

The end result is a quality roof that is in as good if not better condition then when it was built. Now, this local Temecula business has a great roof with a 20-year warranty backed by General Electric. Serving not just the residents of Temecula and the rest of the Inland Empire and beyond by shipping their products across the country.

Sacramento Roof Replacement Comp Shingles

 

For this 1 story shingle roof home in Sacramento, roof replacement with full tear-off and new sheathing was the right call. As roofing contractors, we see all types of roofs in every condition imaginable. Even a roof with many years of service under its belt can provide adequate protection as long as the roof was installed correctly and is maintained regularly.

We were glad to hear that on this project we were referred to by another Sacramento area roofing customer. We always appreciate when people are satisfied and even more so when tell their friends and family when they need a local roofer.

After getting the old roof removed and got down to the wood, we installed new plywood sheathing. Level 1 Roofing is dedicated to doing things right. The new sheathing was necessary to adhere to the new building and safety code. We installed white drip edge metal along the eaves in order to have the most protection for the house’s fascia and shiplap wood. A few Owens Corning Ventsure inflow vents were installed along the lower sections of the roof to ensure good air intake in the attic. We also installed ventilation along the ridge to have great circulation and keep the roo and accompanying house properly ventilated. On all our roof replacements we like to inform the home or property owner about synthetic underlayment. Click here if you want to see a great comparison of asphalt felt vs synthetic.

Standing Seam Metal Roof Replacement – Black Bear Diner Arden St, Sacramento

Standing Seam Metal Roof Replacement – Black Bear Diner Arden St, Sacramento

 

Black Bear Diner decided to open up a location on Arden St., renovating a former Coco’s Restuarant. Level 1 Roofing was contracted to install a standing seam metal roof replacement, removing the old shingles and installing green metal roofing. Synthetic underlayment was placed between the plywood and the panels of metal roofing on top. This signature green used at nearly all of the Black Bear Diner locations was key to make sure the look is consistent. Metal roofs not only look great but also provide several decades of protection. The price for a metal roof typically runs higher than other sloped roofing materials, such as concrete tile or comp shingles. The quality and waterproofing of a metal standing seam roof is well worth the investment. All roofs will require maintenance at some point but a properly installed metal roof by a licensed contractor requires little attention compared to other comparable roofing materials. Metal can come in many any color and all sorts of styles. Metal shingles, metal shake, metal slate, metal tile are all forms we can shape and install for a client. We are proud to help this new restaurant serve up delicious food for the hungry people of Sacramento in this great establishment.

We also installed all new sheet metal drip edge, valley metal, pipe flashing & T-tops. On this particular Citrus Heights roof replacement, we included the replacement of dry rot at 2 sections.
